MMA Coach Martin Stapleton On Defying Victim Mode And Building The Best You Possible
Listen now
Former Royal Marines Commando and MMA World Champion Martin ‘50 Cal’ Stapleton returns for a second bout of real uncensored chat.  Nothing is off limits as we go deep into why so many well-intentioned people fail when it comes to bettering themselves, how to get out of victim mentality and why we need to stop letting society define our definition of success. KEY TAKEAWAYS No one ever got to be a champion at anything by not putting in the hard yards. The fight itself is only a tiny part of the journey - there's a vast and comprehensive journey behind that brief moment. You have to choose goals that are appropriate to your mindset and capabilities. Long terms goals are great, but if the going gets tough, you can fall by the wayside. It's far better to set smaller, incremental goals and hit them often. People don't choose martial arts because they want a fight. They want to better themselves, get fit and emulate the kind of community spirit, camaraderie and mindset that results when we apply ourselves to a discipline. People who do well in life are those who recognise there are doubts and fears in life, and do something about it. Those who fail normalise those fears and hide from them. BEST MOMENTS 'I believe everybody should do martial arts' 'Fights are won and lost in the weeks, months, and years beforehand' 'It's got to be built on solid foundations - in a solid belief in yourself' 'If I can just get them out of victim mode, then I feel like I've done my job' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission -   Martin Stapleton Instagram - SBG Rochdale - Athletic Greens -  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities. Fast forward to today, and life looks very different. Ellie committed to turning her life around for herself and her family. Following this commitment, she got to work and has now built multiple successful companies, as well as having created a multimillion-pound property portfolio from a standing start. Ellie is now on a mission to make a positive impact and add value to others through her podcast which has attracted phenomenal guests worldwide. The show is specifically to help those trying to reach their full potential through its inspirational and motivational content, as well as challenging conventional wisdom to discuss all the “hot topics” in a relentless pursuit of the truth.
